  1. Please welcome the flood of LeBron speculation

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

    There have been discussions of it for years. It’s slowly been increasing; a major article here, a random rumor there. But now, with July and the free agency period just four months away, we’ve finally come to it. Everyone and their momma has an idea on what LeBron’s going to do. Now, to be clear,…

  2. Evans generating some serious political capital

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Maybe political strategists have been wrong all along. The key to bipartisanship isn’t offering an olive branch, finding balance, or making compromises. It’s just finding the best damn rookie on the planet and parking him in your city (are you taking notes, Ernie Grunfeld?). Former NBAer and current mayor of Sacramento Kevin Johnson teamed up…

  3. Crisis in China: Yao's baby could be American

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    Want to know what the celebrity gossip is in China? Of course you do, who doesn’t? One of my goals in life was always to be a Chinese gossip columnist, so here goes: Yao Ming’s baby could be born in America — and that would be a national disgrace. Yao and his wife Ye Li…

  4. Reggie Evans: NBA's dirtiest player

    Mar 3, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    You’ll get no argument from Chris Kaman. Sports Illustrated polled 173 NBA players — secret ballot, of course, that’s how we do things in America — and found that Toronto’s Reggie Evans is considered the dirtiest player in the NBA (winning 21 percent of the vote). If you want to know why, check out the…

  5. Phil Jackson likes Jordan the owner

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:47 AM EDT

    In what can only be described as the opposite of a stunning revelation, Phil Jackson has said good things about Michael Jordan. This time it was about Jordan the team owner. “I think it’s a great opportunity for him,” Jackson said before the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday. “I think…

  6. You can never get enough Durant dunking

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:24 AM EDT

    If there is one thing that if fun to watch, it is Oklahoma City in transition.

  7. Cleveland, Ilgauskas start inevitable dance

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    Like the guy in the red uniform that beams down with Captain Kirk and Spock to the planet, we all know how some things are going to end. (Poorly for that guy.) Same with the the Zydrunas Ilgauskas courtship. The Boston Celtics — desperate to add anyone, to the point they are seriously talking to…

  8. Knicks think LeBron isn't coming

    Mar 3, 2010, 8:57 AM EDT

    The smart money has always been on LeBron staying in Cleveland. That’s about as exciting as rose bush pruning, but it’s the truth. We in the media don’t write about it much because speculation of him shaking up the NBA with a move is a lot more fun — and gets a lot more hits.…

  9. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 3, 2010, 2:19 AM EDT

    Our game recaps from Tuesday, or what you missed while reading Free Darko…. Celtics 105, Pistons 100: Boston did what they do on defense — Detroit was just 2-18 from three point range and turned the ball over one of every five times down the court. The Celtics also shot the ball much better than…

  10. Ricky Davis headed to Turkey

    Mar 2, 2010, 9:40 PM EDT

    Ricky Davis, a 12-year NBA veteran who spent most of this season (and all of last) with the Clippers is headed to Turkey to earn a paycheck. He’ll be joining Turk Telekom Ankara for the rest of the season, according to Turkish papers (well, the translation of Turkish papers as we do not speak Turkish).…

  11. Thumbgate: Did Davis intentionally hurt Shaq?

    Mar 2, 2010, 7:22 PM EDT

    Like it was the Zapruder film, Cavaliers and Celtics fans have been poring over the footage from the thumb injury to Shaquille O’Neal. And, as they always do (for some odd reason), the conspiracy freaks have found a new cause: Glen Davis intentionally hurt Shaq’s thumb. Well, at least it’s something to distract the conspiracy…

  12. Come see the Nets, we'll do your taxes

    Mar 2, 2010, 6:41 PM EDT

    The worst job in America is waiting tables at the Denny’s in Hollywood from midnight until 4 am, when you are just slammed because all the drunk but broke hipsters show up to order “Moons over my Hammy” then realize they don’t have money left for a tip. Second worst, marketing manager for the New…

  13. Posnanski on Wilt's 100-point game

    Mar 2, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    Today makes it 48 years since Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a single game, one of the most most recognizable single-game records in the history of team sports. Writing for Sports Illustrated, Joe Posnanski talks about Chamberlain’s relationship with Frank McGuire. McGuire was Chamberlain’s coach during his 100-point game, and famously never took Wilt…

  14. Gilbert Arenas says he would play for Wizards again

    Mar 2, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas is going to return to the NBA next year — teams are amazingly forgiving of sins if a player can score a lot of points. And Arenas can still score a lot of points. And he’d be happy to do that for the Wizards, according to AP. In his first interview since pleading…

  15. Stephen Curry, making layups

    Mar 2, 2010, 4:04 PM EDT

    Finishing at the rim can be one of the hardest things for young guards to do at the NBA level. It’s also one of the most important. As much as we tend to pay attention to quickness, passing, and outside shooting when talking about guard prospects, the ability to convert at the rim is just…

  16. Jordan takes big gamble on Bobcats

    Mar 2, 2010, 3:12 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan’s gambling penchant is almost as legendary as his game. But his move last Friday is the biggest financial gamble of his life — he bought an NBA franchise. Like a lot of small market teams, the Charlotte Bobcats are losing money, with ticket sales and sponsorship revenue down in this economy. The Bobcats…

  17. Mo Evan's shot, it rocks, it rocks

    Mar 2, 2010, 2:18 PM EDT

    Sorry about the headline, but Charles Barkley is stuck in my head, and that’s the only headline I could come up with. However, Mo Evans shot last night for the Hawks does rock.

  18. Brand out with Achilles injury

    Mar 2, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Elton Brand is not boarding the team charter today for travel and a game in Atlanta Wednesday, due to right Achilles tendonitis, according to the merged Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News Web site. He had been listed as day-to-day with a sore calf (apparently Bill Belichick is handling the Sixers injury report now) but the…

  19. Ewing Jr. to play for Jamaica

    Mar 2, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    Patrick Ewing Jr., son of NBA superstar Patrick Ewing, will reportedly represent Jamaica in international competition. Before being waived because of a serious MCL sprain, Ewing was averaging 16.8 points and 8.9 rebounds per game for the Reno Bighorns of the D-League.  While Aljani Williams, president of the Jamaica Amateur Basketball association, was filing papers…

  20. Nocioni suspended two games for DUI

    Mar 2, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    Andres Nocioni will not be in uniform tonight when Sacramento takes on Oklahoma City, instead he will be serving the first game of his two-game suspension handed down by the league. Nocioni was arrested in Sacramento for a DUI on Nov. 5 and last week pled no contest to the charge. His attorney said at…
